The 2017 Shanghai Rolex Masters will be played from October 7-15, in Minhang District of Shanghai.
The defending champion is the former World No. 1 Andy Murray, who has had a season to forget. With only one singles title so far, which came in Dubai in a 500 series event, one ought to wonder if the Brit will be able to defend his title successfully in the 2017 Shanghai Masters.
While he had consistent runs up to the final few rounds in French Open and Wimbledon, his withdrawal from the US Open owing to injury has left his fans with bated breaths.
Murray hasn’t proven himself to be a world class player this season. His peculiar timing to pull out from playing at the Flushing Meadows this season begs the question if he will join the long list of players who have succumbed to injuries.
Nonetheless, the talent pool is going to be highly impressive to say the least. With the way youngsters have been performing this season, it is only a matter of time before they start to dominate on the Masters circuit.
Alexander Zverev has already won two Masters title back to back, ranging from Italian Open to Rogers Cup. Despite his early exit in the US Open, he will certainly fancy his chances to make it a treble of Masters titles in 2017.
Another player to look out for will be Denis Shapovalov, who quickly rose on the Challenger circuit and began to make a name for himself on the ATP tour. His great run in the Canadian Open and an inspiring performance at the Flushing Meadows makes him a player to look out for in the Shanghai Rolex Masters.
Fans can also expect Roger Federer to participate, provided he is in the best of his health. He missed out on the event last season, but has promised to visit Shanghai this year.
